If you've never had the opportunity to hear the stunning voice of Amy Blanding, here's your chance. 

Blanding is set to release her new album "Down The Line" this Saturday at the Prince George Legion. 

Doors will open at 8 p.m. with a showtime of 9 p.m. and a $10 cover. 

Blanding's music revolves around her collection of moments in the northern wild, which she turns into stalwart folk songs. 

She originally started out with nationally-recognized folk-rock band Black Spruce Bog, where she says she honed her craft as a songwriter.

She then was signed to Good Egg Records. 

The album is described as a musical depth and energy unique to the B.C. music scene. 

"Down The Line" was recorded and mixed on Lheidli T'enneh traditional territory by Pulp City Music.

The album has six original songs and one song that was previously unrecorded by Canadian songwriter Raghu Lokanathan. 

Her album includes a cast of Danny Bell (drums), Brin Porter (stand-up bass, electric bass, harmonica), Naomi Kavka (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, cello, mandolin), Chloe Nakahara (Fiddle), Curtis Abriel (Piano, trombone), Blake Bamford (banjo, lap steel), Spencer Hammond (saw), and a very special group of women who gathered together to record a live choral performance.

  • Release date Sept. 14, 2019 (MAPL/SOCAN/ASCAP)
  • Available on all streaming platforms and amyblanding.com

Also joining Blanding at her release party will be Samson's Delilah.
